Scoops: Nerd-y Plumes... Call Betsey... Robert Isabell's Will...

Moncler has teamed up with Pharrell Williams, according to sources.

NERD-Y PLUMES: Now that Moncler’s creative ties with major designers are going strong, word has it the outerwear specialist is exploring new ground. According to sources, Moncler has teamed up with Pharrell Williams to work on a special project. A company spokesman declined to comment.

Johnson plans to spend Fashion’s Night Out tonight driving between her stores in a pink convertible brandishing large signs, though she worried that it might violate some regulation. “But I have a good relationship with the police,” she said. “I did some fund-raisers for them, and their girlfriends wear my clothes.”
